Armchair BEA 2014 Introduction

One of these years I plan on going to BEA. Perhaps in 2016 when the event moves to Chicago? That’s a lot closer to this Midwestern gal. Until that fine day comes about I’m delighted to participate in the Armchair BEA!  The organizers of this event are awesome and tireless and I have to say THANKS right off the bat.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?

I’m Jennifer…or Jen, maybe even Jenni if you’re a 7th grade classmate of mine. 

I’ve been blogging for just under 2 years. I started because no one in my real life wanted to nerd out over books with me. I had to go find my people. 

I’m blogging from the glorious state of Wisconsin. I’m way up in the northern part of the state…or “practically Canada” as we call it.

Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online.

Describe my blog in one sentence? It’s just another book blog. Ha, no. That’s boring. 

My blog represents my lovely, eclectic, literary lifestyle! (That’s a little better.)

You can find me all over the place, if you so desire:


I hope we can hook up at all, or some of, the above places!

What is your favorite blogging resource?

My fellow bloggers. I don’t know what I’d do without them. Everyone is always so helpful and full of information. There’s no substitute. (I love you guys!)

Share your favorite book or reading related quote. 

This. Without a doubt.

See you around, fellow Armchair BEAers. Have a fab week!

  1. I was going to say that I've been to Toronto and loved it…but then I remembered that it was actually Thunder Bay, lol. I have no opinion on Toronto because I've never been :DIt's #1 on my bucket list too!


  2. Jennifer, Jen, Jenni…ha! Love that. I went to BEA when it was in Chicago about, what, 14 years ago? It was a great time. Bill Clinton was the keynote speaker and he blew me away. That man can talk and he certainly knows books.
